Rated 5 out of 5 by wpbgal Unique Golden Birds
Each year I purchase something new and unique for my Christmas home decorating. My cardinals arrived today, actually earlier than I expected. When I opened the box to examine them, I was really pleasantly surprised - the rich gold/bronze coloring, the detailing, and the nice sturdy weight. These are definitely not disposable plastics. I can tell these are going to be part of my Christmas home for a long time. I would definitely recommend these as a gift - they're very impressive.

These birds are not only pretty BUT the battery life is tremendous. Because the Christmas design is muted, I can keep these in my fireplace decorations throughout the year. Unless people get up close it is not easy to see that they are wearing holly. I love that these can be used during more than just the holidays since they are very pretty

I purchased both the gold and red. The birds were made of resin which isn't fragile and will last for years of decor. I have always decorated with red cardinals for winter as long as the look realistic,so I was pleased with the detail as well as the size. I nested one in a flower arrangement and the other in some ivy beside a lamp on my fireplace. As a decor piece the birds as very pretty,but as the others have written the light is not enough to notice. The timer worked and both lit up ,but so faint I had to cup my hand over the wings to make it dark enough to see any light.
I kept the red set for myself and gave the gold set to a elderly relative for Christmas ,she hasn't mentioned them in the 3 months since recieved so I take it she wasn't impressed and choses to not say anything.
I have purchased many sets of lit items by Valerie so this is just a poor unfortunate item. I will still shop with her and QVC.

I bought the red ones back before Christmas, they are priced too high really, but they are very pretty. I still have them out as they can be for winter as well, not just for Christmas. The wings make them.
Rated 1 out of 5 by chemomama So disappointed!
Yes, the light is very,very dim! And the battery door will not stay on one of the birds so no light. They are cheap looking and unfortunately I had had them so long I could not send them back.

Tried several batteries and one never lit up and the other is so dim you cannot see it! Very poor quality!

I love these & had forgotten I'd ordered them. Couldn't be happier; very "antiquey" and quite elegant. Love the fact that they light up. Perfect for Christmas or any time. They are now on display in our Den.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Dollez Gorgeous but Lighting is poor!
The red cardinals were gorgeous but only one had a little light showing and the other one just had 3 red dots. Great if you don't want them lit up. I hope they come back next year with better mosaic tiles that will let the light illuminate to show their beauty.
